, that human and material resources adequate to -- >> vice president elsbernd: can i ask a question of the staff on maintenance and capital there. i agree with the theory that supervisor farrell is putting forward but in the budget game that happens every year, and the capital dollars that are available, isn't it more likely they're going to have a better shot at getting money if it's appropriated as capital? because operating costs are going all over the place. capital costs not so much. wait 'til you get to the mic. >> of think some of the wording here whether it's an operating cost or an operating expense, a capital cost, exal expense, from a funding perspective if it's coming from capital planning we're going to defend it and we haven't increased it in the last few years. >> vice president elsbernd: what do you mean defend it? as a priority because we are focused on long-term funding. >> vice president elsbernd: i guess i was thinking there's more money available for this kind of capital work than looking at the operating pot of money. >> not a lot there. >> vice president elsbe

you very much. next speaker. >> good afternoon, mr. chairman, supervisor elsbernd, john gul gullenner, the chair of the coit tower effort. it is 78 years old born after the arts commission charter was created and the murals painted the following year. i want to thank richard rothman for championing the preservation of the coit tower mules and he and city guides for literally being up there week after week, showing people who had no idea what they're looking at, what it's about, what san francisco has. and jane blachly whose father has an oil painting. there are four or five oil paintings. her fearlt's painting is a good example of what's missing at coit tower. there is not a tag next to her father's painting saying who painted it. it's fallen off years ago. we want to pay attention to the grand jury's report recommendation which blame a dysfunctional dynamic between rec and park and the art commission that we hope the board will help fix. as to art funding -- get zero funding for the coit collection. not 1% of what coit towers brings in, and the proposal under the new concessionaire w

their views. but so supervisor elsbernd's comments aren't misconstrued. this is not just a citizen discuss group where people come together and express their views and put out statements. this is the official civil grand jury with the title "civil grand jury," with the title "superior court" above and i think that brings on an added responsibility beyond what a neighborhood association or a discussion group may have. so i think supervisor campos is correct that people should be encouraged to express their views, but when you are in that kind of official body, i think you have to be very, very conscientious of the limitations of what you are able to say or not say. ? >> colleagues any further discussion. madame clerk roll call. >> item 23 supervisor elsbernd? >> elsbernd aye. >> supervisor farrell? >> aye. >> supervisor kim? >> kim no. >> supervisor mar? >> no. >> mar no. >> supervisor olague? >> no. >> supervisor wiener? >> wiener, aye. >> supervisor avalos? >> no avalos no. >> supervisor campos? >> no. >> campos no. >> president chiu? >> aye. >> supervisor chu? >> a
